"Now the 21st century approaches and with it the inevitability of
change. We must wonder if the American people will find renewal and
rejuvenation within themselves, will discover again their capacity
for innovation and adaptation. If not, alas, the nation's future will
be shaped by sightless forces of history over which Americans will
have no control."
John Chancellor
(1927-1996) American journalist, news anchorman

    Suzy Q, yes - Welcome to Amerika,

    The federal government has exceeded its Constitutional jurisdiction of Washington, DC. State governments will become increasingly overburdened with debts to the federal government. There will be another succession -- but will there be civil war? We are already at war, but the People have been conditioned to NOT fight back. But the programming cannot control everyone. Most of the conditioning is based upon falsehood -- when the truth is revealed and understood, that will herald the next Awakening. One day the Chinese people may have their turn at Liberty -- I think America has had its run. When we are ready to live within our means and to call our mis-managers to account, then maybe we will have a chance. It will most likely start with individual States.

    Doesn't this mean that we are no longer the owner of our own bodies? Yes, I believe we are now chattel of the federal government. They have removed the Constitution and Bill of Rights...and our independence nearly all in the past 4 years so there really is nothing left of the United States...and people still go about with their heads buried in the sand ... seriously, celebrating Independence Day??? We are DEPENDENT BY LAW!

    You can spread the word in an attempt to bring back individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and liberty at nature's law. You can work agains socialism and other enslaving / destructive isms.

    Great question. You can start by "asking not what my country can do for me." Our answers ultimately determine the fate of the country.
